You can skip movies 10 times but never go back.
When the government puts all its rotten criminal eggs in one airborne basket, it's asking for trouble. Before you can say, "Pass the barf bag," the crooks control the plane, led by creepy Cyrus "The Virus" Grissom. Watching his every move is the just-released Cameron Poe, who'd rather reunite with his family. The action climaxes with an incredible crash sequence in Las Vegas.

So, did you ever wonder what a Spike Jonze/Charlie Kaufman actors reunion would look like if told by a guy who would make Michael Bay say "Maybe you should tone it down!", on top of featuring the greatest hair piece ever put on an actor?
You'd get this masterpiece.
I'm dead serious. THIS SHIT IS GLORIOUS!
The last time I had this much fun watching an action movie was with "Mad Max: Fury Road", which is saying a lot, now ain't it? Expect this movie features Nicolas Cage, so it's…
Is there a six star option?
When it comes to Con Air, there are two kinds of people:-
1) People who think Con Air is fucking awesome.
2) People who I don't want to talk to.

I hadn't seen this movie since it came out more than 15 years ago. I didn't much care for it then, but I have to confess I LOOOOOOOOOVED it today. What played as a ridiculously dumb action film then now hit me as a deliberately silly action comedy. There are some choices that were probably meant to play straight that have since aged into unintentional majesty (like the de rigueur Bruckheimer radio-friendly pop song that is hilariously dated AND so completely inappropriate for the material, LeAnn Rimes' "How Do I Live"), but for the most part this movie is deliciously self-aware.
The action is all rock solid, and the cast is impossibly great: John Cusack, Steve Buscemi, Danny Trejo, Ving…
Loud, large, and spectacular, Simon West's "Con Air" is an action film that is both ridiculous and sublime. Crafted to make pulses pound while viewers' eyes are glued to their screens, the film never apologizes for its combination of jet fuel, gun powder, heart, and muscle. The film revels joyfully in its higher-than-high-octane craziness. Everything about the film is played to unsubtle and unaturally noisy volumes, but there is no doubting the sheer action bliss that "Con Air" provides.
The story is a silly as it effective: after being sentence to prison for an act of self defense, Nicolas Cage's Cameron Poe is due to be released. Flying home on a cargo plane full of dangerous convicts, Poe's situation becomes…
Sometimes the mere mention of a film in someone's review can give you that urge to watch something. Steve Grzesiak's review of Passenger 57 touched on an action classic in the shape of Con Air. It's cheesy, it's implausible, but it's wickedly entertaining in that no holds barred thrilling action style the late nineties doted on.
Simon West's film has more than just Nicolas Cage to carry it. Cage plays a former US Ranger who is jailed in the opening credits for killing a man during a bar brawl that threatened his unborn daughter. Serving seven years, he's on a prison transport plane home to Alabama and release, as the rest of the inmates are on their way to a…
this is unironically one of the best things humanity has ever produced as a collective
oud maar nog steeds goed
Cürus, der Vürus!
- was für ein Cast
- grauenhafter Humor (meist grenzwertig)
- katastrophale deutsche Synchro (Cürus, der Vürus!)
- absolut flache Dialoge
- kein guter Score, aber ein paar gute Soundtrack-Songs
This would get a much lower rating if it wasn't so damn enjoyable and funny!
John Cusack wears sandals with socks the whole movie through

"Oh, stewardess? Stewardess? What's the in-flight movie today?"
"Well, I think you'll like it, Cyrus. It's called "I'll Never Make Love to a Woman on the Beach Again", and it's preceded by the award-winning short, "No More Steak for Me, Ever"."
"Funny fucker, aren't ya?"
Probably the 756th time I've watched Con Air by this point.
Still the Greatest Movie Ever Made In The History Of Ever™.
Tiene las mejores frases, esto es así.
The epitome of 90’s action films. Silly, fun and over the top. Part of the Nicholas Cage action trifecta that came out in the mid 90s. (The Rock and Face/Off being the others) I loved this film as a kid, though I viewed films differently back then. But watching it now it still holds up for what it is.
My little brother is into movies...not quite as much as I am, but he has a healthy appetite for them...and…
